DONATELLA&ME, that’s the title of the thoroughly thought-through social media campaign that was launched for the new e-commerce website of Versace.
For this event, we, but also a few other bloggers had the opportunity to play dress-up in a few Versace creations.
Not the easiest of tasks since the outfits are, well, rather colorful and loud. Today we’ll show you a round up of the Versace outfits:
Gala Gonzalez from AmLul is wearing her magical Versace dress together with a hand full of bananas and an incredibly natural smile. Her facial expression suggests that she shoved one of the bananas up her behind. Sexy.
During Madrid Fashion Week we got to experience Gala ‘live’. We confronted her with a made up rumor of having an affair with Aznar, a buff politician. You can read how she reacted in the Interview.
The ever happy Susie Bubble and the Cherry Blossom Girl were smart enough to show their outfits in black and white. That’s always been an intelligent solution. The guys obviously couldn’t come up with such a thought-through approach:
‘Uber blogger’ BryanBoy poses in a lady-like manner with a Versace purse. Pure testosterone. Posing and outfit would probably cause a collective erection in the lady boy paradise Pattaya.
Prince Pelayo from KateLovesMe is rocking as always. That guy can really wear anything. He would even look stylish in a Miss Piggy costume.
Jakob already described my outfit to the point, I have nothing to add:
“David is wearing a wild mix of colors, leather, lamb fur and green fur. More over-the-top is probably impossible. It’s the Christopher Street Day version of the Clockwork Orange style.”
However, he didn’t exercise any self-criticism, so let’s catch up on that. Read a critical review of his Versace look below:
Jakob is wearing a red and pink ensemble, his pants are tucked into the boots and glorious medals decorate the revers of his jacket.
If head forest ranger Stefan Leitner from ZDF TV show Forsthaus Falkenau ever comes out of the closet, leaves his picture-perfect family to go into hiding in the forest with a 4-liter bottle of poppers to go wild boar hunting he would probably look something like this.
A dick was enough to make the fashion world freak: RICK OWENS - sent out his models with coats and tunics, which were cut out at the crouch or had a hole, on the runway.
Under the designs of the ‘prince of darkness’ the models wore nothing, therefore the viewers, and a few minutes later also for the rest of world, could spot some penises.
Rick Owens told the i:D magazine backstage, how it happened that he broke that taboo:
“I thought it was the most simple, primal gesture-and you know I love a simply tiny, little gesture that packs the wallop. Not many people can do that. I mean, it’s a straight world now. And it also, I think, says something about being independent. Who else can really get away with that kind of stuff? It’s a corporate world.”
To show some balls – apparently a sign of independence. Rick Owens is one of the few independent designers, since his label does not belong to a luxury-conglomerate like LVMH or PPR.
The last time, that Rick Owens was shocking the fashion world is not so long ago: In 2013 he sent out raging dancers on the runway.

A few years ago, streetstyle-experts started wearing their jackets or coats around their shoulders, instead of putting their arms through their sleeves. The technical term for that is ‘coat slinging’.
Recently, the german newspaper BUNTE (!) reported about the styling-trend. ‘Coat slinging’ therefore officially became a ‘no-go’. So: dear friends with good taste, please stick your arms in your sleeves from now on.
Because a sleeve without an arm, is like Justin O’Shea without Veronika, like Cara Delevigne without eyebrows: somehow not complete.
In 2008, Scott Schuman (aka: The Sartorialist) has revealed the first case of ‘coat slinging’ on his blog, afterwards an epidemic broke out, from which the fashion-world still has not recovered.
It has been enough: put your jackets on properly again! Otherwise you appear like a gay fashion-journalist from 2010 (who would put his arms into sleeves nowadays)
